:I have a 9 month old female and the other 2 are 14 months.
:Should I not put my little 9 month female in with the older girls.

If you put her in with another (bigger) female that you haven't quarantined, you might be asking for trouble if the new one has cooties. If the original female is the one you've posted about many times, she might not like the stress of being in with a bigger girl, and slow down on eating again. If you're already concerned that she's not big enough, this move will not help her grow on bit.


:Maybe I have no problem buying another tank it is all the stuff that goes along with it eg. Screen lid, furniture, more cleaning. etc. I was trying to keep as much space as possible for the babies.

Why not work with the geckos you have right now, and get them set up properly so they can thrive. Don't set them up too cramped like sardines, and expect them to flourish. If you don't have room, don't breed them - there's more to raising babies than finding a spot to put them. If you eventually have 3 females breeding, you'll have tons of babies to raise before they're big enough to sell - do you have room for them? If so, then you can use some of that space right now to set up a decent enclosure for the adults you've got(are getting). If you don't like the idea of all that furniture and more cleaning for one more adult enclosure, think again about babies - you'll have a LOT more of that to do when they hatch out.
